About this mezcal

Nose is prickly pear/cactus flower, sweet flowers, woody tobasiche, coppery notes.

Palate is a sweet explosion of tobasiche flavors. Green pepper, peanut, wood, pumpkin, minerality. Very quaffable.

Lote ANG-02
Might be the most surprising mezcal compared to expectations that I’ve ever had. Obviously anticipating the standard Madre, which is more of a mixer than a sipper, but this is definitely a heavy-hitting, clay distilled, complex ensamble. The tobasiche and espadin are great together – classic clay smell, with some sweet pumpkin notes. Full mouth feel that is all around softer from the tobasiche. Some roasted peanut notes. Only complaint may be heat is way hotter than the listed 47%, but overall didn’t mind. 4.25 Stars really.
